Learn how to communicate and relax during divorce

Children of divorce must learn that just because their parents aren't going to live together any longer doesn't mean that both parents won't be there to support them. You have to work with your ex, as hard as that might be, because your relationship with him or her isn't going to end with the divorce. Instead, during the entire time your children are minors you will have to work as a team.

The communication you have now with your ex can set the tone for years to come. One thing that might make it difficult to deal with your ex is stress. Controlling stress is crucial when you're going through a divorce or dealing with custody issues with your ex.

Take time for yourself

Putting yourself first every now and then won't hurt anything. In fact, taking the time to do things that you enjoy can help you to relax. You must take care of yourself throughout the divorce. Exercising can release endorphins, which can help you to feel more positive. You can even include your children in this exercise. Taking hikes in nature or going bicycling may help you and your children settle into a new way of life.

Prepare for meeting with your ex

Mentally prepare yourself before each meeting with your ex. This can help you get ready for the battles that might be coming. It also gives you a chance to shore yourself up so you feel better able to deal with whatever your ex does. Make sure that your preparation doesn't add more stress to your life. Instead, you should follow the old adage of preparing for the worst and hoping for the best.

Think about your children

Your children might have functions that they want you and your ex to attend. Put your children first in these cases and avoid handling anything difficult with your ex while your children are with you. This can show your children that you and your ex will remain united in parenting.

No matter what is going on with the divorce, your children shouldn't ever have to worry about choosing between you and your ex. Try to make the divorce as easy on them as possible. Consider setting up meetings with your ex while your children aren't around so that you can speak freely and work out issues.
